An Update from Lee

A year ago I announced we had our own home! It was a decades-long wait for me, but a dream fulfilled by my loving Father. Although we struggled with coming back to America after being overseas for fourteen years, looking back, we are assured that He has us in just the right place, not just in America, but down to being in this home. We were just discussing last night how everything worked to point us to being right here, right now. For such a time as this, right?

Thanks for sticking with us this year! I know we had a roller-coaster ride in the middle of the year when the site crashed. It was actually a sweet time in the Lord for me, His peace and presence being so close and clear. It felt like a personal victory to me being able to walk through it in that state of mind.

This was actually a pretty awesome year for our family. We had our first ever year in our own home. We’ve been slowly working on it. We’ve been able to host guests and spend time with neighbors.

Easy Peasy grew lots this year and we’ve been able to use that to help families locally and around the world. We just got an ad page up to help EP families hopefully, and we brought back our book request for struggling families.

My husband started working on a Bible translation project this year, in the North Macedonia dialect of Romani. He’s partnering via Messenger with his best friend, his language teacher from Macedonia (now named North Macedonia). He’s also become a regular guest preacher by Zoom at churches in India.

During the spring quarantine, I made miracle story videos to encourage people to not be afraid. I got up a site this year to house those videos, as well as other teachings, a gospel message, and the Romani Bible translation. That’s been fun work. I make the videos for the audio version of the Bible translation. While my husband and his friend have worked out how to write down this mostly unwritten language, the main thrust of the translation is to make it available as audio. It’s out on social media now and some Roma have started getting together online weekly to pray and read the scriptures for the first time in their own language.

This fall I led a reading/Bible study group using my novel, The King Will Make a Way. That was a fun and encouraging time for me as well.

Beginning this first week of January, you’ll be able to add “Good Morning, Lord” to your My EP course list. I am making 2-minute Bible teaching videos. I’ve been going through Genesis so far. This year I also wrote a Bible study called “This Is Eternal Life” on the high school site. That was the book of Matthew, and I’ve been adding onto that going through the book of John.

We got some more courses done as workbooks, as requested by our EP families. I got out some updates to our My EP site to make things even easier peasier. We replaced a multitude of Flash games with our very own fun activities, and I got to see my once-a-year-friends at our annual EP picnic, which is always a treat!

Here are our EP stats. We’ve almost made it everywhere in the world! The darker color means more people use it there.

 

The dark blue is actual visitors. The big blocks are just views. These aren’t registered users, just people finding their way to the All-in-One Homeschool site. But still…what a difference a year makes. The Lord uses all things for good

 

All praise to the One who does all things well. I’m grateful to get to be part of what He’s up to. Thanks for joining our EP family, whether you’ve been here from the start or are just beginning. We’re happy to have you and hope we can do a good job of serving your family. It’s our desire to have a little part of bringing life into homes.

    The Lord is great, indeed! I am always amazed to read all that the Lord does through you and your family. What an encouragement you are. Thanks for everything. On a much smaller scale (much, much smaller), God has also shown himself mightily in my family’s life throughout this year. We began using your printed workbooks when the site crashed in the fall. That was a so nice. We are going to be using them from now on.

      I feel like I’ve heard from several people that this was kind of a personal “revival” type year in families. He’s at work!

    Mrs Lee, you and your husband have put in so much hard work to get this all going and then to share it all for free is beyond amazing. I’m so thankful we found your site when my daughter was still a toddler, I knew from the day I found i was pregnant, I would homeschool and I’m so glad we ave had the opportunity to learn with the easy peasy family!

    God bless you and your family Mrs Lee. Thank you and all your staff for all their time, hard work and dedication.

    You guys are an amazing testimony! God bless you so much! We failed to register, but do access your homeschooling materials as visitors.

    May God expand your territory especially this year 🙏🏼🙂

    I am so grateful for this curriculum! thank you so much for the update. Our year has been pretty wonderful too, homeschooling our second child, first year for her. I wanted more telework days and i got them! I can be home every day now. Up until 3 weeks ago our family has been covid free. I have 3 sisters, one of them has a husband who is in hospital on a vent with Covid, please be in prayer for him. So far he is in stable and we have every hope he will recover. God willing he will be home with his wife and children soon! Thanks for all you do, and your prayers, we will continue to pray for your family as well.

    This website has helped me out a bit as I’ve navigated the homeschool waters for the first time over this past year. Grateful for what you do and share. Thank you and be encouraged that this is helping so many of us out here! (We are located in China, serving an international church.)

    Simply amazing Lee. God is truly at work this year in so many ways. Thank you for your continued commitment to families and education on a global level.

    Hi Lee,

    We are just starting t o use All in One as I have been looking at it for years! I was encouraged by your story, how your husband is translating a bible for the Romani people. Our background is Macedonian and we have spent some time over as children and adults, the last time being 16 years ago, freshly saved and attending ‘underground’ church posing as a bike shop in Bitola. So very excited to hear what God is doing in (north) Macedonia. Look forward to any updated you have. Bless your time in America in your new home.

      I consider Macedonia to be my favorite place in the world. I have been to Bitola several times. Thanks for writing. We have Matthew out and much of the epistles. It has just gotten to Bulgarian Roma who understand it just as well and are very excited about it. The weekend Roma prayer meeting has people in/from seven different countries as the Roma tend to emigrate.
